Show Me Some Science! Constructive and Destructive Interference

 In Shopcasts and Videos, Show Me Some Science

Waves are one way in which energy can be sent down a string. When two waves meet, they interact. This interaction is called interference. If two waves add up to make a larger wave this is known as constructive interference and if they cancel out it’s destructive interference.

After the waves interact, they pass through each other and continue doing their own thing as if nothing ever happened.
